3.5 mile run this morning on sore, stiff legs. They warmed up and behaved about a mile into the run…. thankfully. Daffodils are doing their thing, even in the dark morning light.
Grace had to get updated on her vaccinations this morning so off to my wonderful vets office we went! A friend of mine, Ben Mann, is an artist and was commissioned to do all of the artwork for the office. He surprised me and painted my dear, sweet Siberian Husky, McKenzie, into the scene that’s in the lobby. This vet saved McKenzie’s life when another had no idea what he was doing when she was initially diagnosed with diabetes and seemed to be guessing as to how to regulate her. He nearly killed her. Dr Johnson at Fairhaven Vet was our saviour! McKenzie died 4 years ago due to complications but I’ll always be grateful for the 10 years I had with her. I loved that I got to take a pic with Grace and McKenzie. 💜💜💜
🌩 16. Is there a character of yours who’s a real struggle to write/draw? Why do you think that is?
Ooh yeah, like I was saying, GLaDOS is tough for me to wrap my brain around.
But I’ve also been struggling with a solid design for Rainbow Core. I rarely have this problem. Most of my Portal designs I have a pretty clear idea of what I want them to look like and can get it down after one or two tries, but I’ve re-drawn Rainbow Core so many times and I just…why won’t you cooperate??? I have like one drawing of him on here and I’m not happy with it. >:<
🦋 4. Any minor characters that have either taken over or branched off into their own stories?
Mmmmmm I guess Glitchy kind of counts? Again, he’s not mine, but I really felt for the guy in Meet the Cores and I wanted him to show up in Testing Maintenance when I got around to writing it. He actually showed up in that much, much more than I ever planned him to. He was originally only supposed to be a quick cameo.
🕸 1. Who’s the oldest character of yours that you still use?
Oh goodness! That would be Pikacha (Cha for short). She’s not a Portal character, she’s a Pokemon character. She is the oldest OC I can remember making. I came up with her when I was 6 or 7-years-old because Pokemon was my favorite thing on the face of the planet and I still draw and RP with her sometimes.
Of my OCs she is the sweetest cinnamon roll. Too pure. I now have a headcanon that she will eventually evolve into an Alolan Raichu. <3
If you ever feel sad just think about the fact that Alec Lightwood canonically wakes up every morning to the love of his life and his beautiful cat eyes, with the softest smile and probably the most adorable bed hair, and they probably have a few moments of peace and gentle morning kisses before a hurricane of blue and black hair comes running into their room and jumping up onto their bed. Just imagine our Alec Lightwood and our Magnus Bane, who both never thought they’d get to be here, wrapping their boys in a giant hug, pressing big kisses to the top of each of their heads and laughing softly, both still unable to believe that they got so damn lucky, that after all the heartache and pain they both went through, they finally got to have a love that felt like coming home, and they finally got to have a family…
